“i have never seen this many people in melbourne in 10 years!,” jeff exclaimed as we followed the throng of people who were out to witness and see for themselves what white night melbourne was all about. yep, we were 2 out of the 500,000(!) curious creatures who watched some of melbourne’s historic buildings all lit up with multicolored lights on that one-night only event.
standing on top of st. paul’s cathedral stairs while jeff took photos on my behalf, i watched the 499,999 people watch melbourne’s historic buildings all lit up. i don’t even know if i’m still making sense but the moment i saw all those heads bobbing around the intersection of swanston and flinders street, i felt dizzy. i kid you not. it was the “woah!” kind of dizzy that makes you dizzy. it was intense!
to be honest, i didn’t really wanna brave the sea of crowd and all i really wanted to see was flinders station anyway so we don’t really have that many photos of the event. but it was sort of like vivid sydney, minus the fireworks. or sinulog, minus the dancers and the lights.
